Erotic Sculpturing (1982) Norval Morrisseau

(Untitled) Erotic Sculpturing
Norval Morrisseau
1982, acrylic on canvass, 28" x 40"

Two essays on erotic painting and carving, "Norval Morrisseau and the Erotic" and "Inuit Men, Erotic Art," have a hard time competing with the images printed alongside their written analyses -- not just because sexual pictures trump academic writing but because so few such images of indigenous art have ever been published.
